Week 11 Waiver Targets

Welcome to Week 11! The playoffs are on the horizon, so it is the perfect time to take an honest look at your roster and record, and see are you capable of contending or not? If you are, congratulations! If not, better luck next year. Let us take a look at some players that will help those contenders continue on strong into the final weeks of the regular season.

QB Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers

Newton is expected to make his debut in Week 11. He came in relief on Sunday and scored two touchdowns. Cam’s scoring prowess on the ground and weapons around him make him a must-own in 12-team leagues. The dearth of good QB options on waivers should make him a plug-in and play this week. 

Wayne Gallman, RB, Falcons

Gallman is an interesting case with the prospect of Patterson being unavailable because of injury. Gallman had 15 carries for 55 yards and one catch for 21 yards in Week 10 against the Cowboys. He brings more to the table than Mike Davis, so expect that to translate onto the field for solid fantasy production. 

D’Onta Foreman, RB, Titans

In Week 10, Foreman led the Titans backfield in carries with 11, compared to eight for Adrian Peterson and four for Jeremy McNichols. This is the nature of how the Titans backfield should be the rest of the year. Foreman looks like the best of the bunch however and seems to be in the line to get the biggest slice of the pie going forward. 

Jamal Agnew, WR, Jaguars

Jamal Agnew is what Laviska Shenault should have been this year. He is getting a good mix of carries and targets. He had three carries for 79 yards and a score last week, giving him a solid week even if he didn’t catch a pass. In the last five games, Agnew had at least five targets and has scored double-digit points in four of them. His dual ability allows him to be a good play regardless of game script. 

Bryan Edwards, WR, Raiders

Bryan Edwards was targeted four times and caught three of them for 88 yards and a score last week. That definitely qualifies as a breakout game for him. The Raiders are looking for someone to take on the alpha role in the wake of the release of Henry Ruggs. Edwards could be that guy. Pick him up now and see if he can replicate his results next week. 

Dan Arnold, TE, Jaguars

Dan Arnold had seven targets in Week 10, making it four of the last five games where he has hit that threshold. He leads the Jaguars in targets, and that kind of consistent usage is hard to find at tight end. If Arnold is available, be sure to plug and play him, as he could be a potential league winner at the position heading into the fantasy playoffs.
